Formerly known as Rationalism Versus Spiritualism and Atheism Versus Polytheism in Buddhism, ISBN: 9783737564557
Is there any God in Buddhism? Is Buddhism an atheist religion? Which meditation practices are common? … The author of this book had a dispute with himself, concerning all these deep-rooted philosophical questions, and therefore he started to write spontaneously, without knowing where his journey will lead him. Topics such as meditation or the rationality of the Buddhist etiquette are discussed, as well as the key points of several sutras such as the Diamond Sutra, Heart Sutra and Lankavatara Sutra are introduced in a very few words, and commonalities and differences between Buddhism and two other religions (Hinduism and Bön) are compared. The book is very useful for those who already have a basic knowledge about Buddhism and want to find an inspiration for themselves, especially if they are not sure yet, which kind of Buddhism suits them best.

This is a new analysis on the North Korean economy by Timo Schmitz who is an expert on North Korea issues. “In 2015 and 2017, I gave a short account on the current economic situation on North Korea. Since the country is very isolated and closed it can take up to 2 to 3 years until an information from the very deep insight of the country is confirmed or disproved. This article tries to show the development from 2014 to 2017 and shows a tendency about the recent development.”

„Was das Dao leert“ ist eine ausführliche Einführung in den Daoismus. In den ersten Kapiteln werden daoistische Grundbegriffe eingeführt, unter anderem das Dao, das De, das Qi, die Bedeutung der Unsterblichkeit, sowie die Pantheonsfrage („Hat der Daoismus eine Götterwelt?“). Danach wird an die Theorie der für die daoistische Praxis benötigten Grundlagen herangeführt, sowie die daoistischen Glaubensausrichtungen, anhand der geschichtlichen Entwicklung des Daoismus nähergebracht. Da der Daoismus eng mit den philosophischen Lehren Laozis und Zhuangzis verbunden ist, wird ausführlich auf den Daodejing eingegangen und die Grundthesen zusammengefasst, gleiches folgt für Zhuangzis Werk „Das wahre Buch vom südlichen Blütenland“ (Nanhua Zhenjing). Abschließend wird der Daoismus in ausgewählten asiatischen Ländern betrachtet, ein Vergleich daoistischer Grundbegriffe zum Platonismus und damit zur westlichen antiken Philosophie gezogen, und über einige daoistische Mythen, vor allem das Fengshui, aufgeklärt. Für Könner der chinesischen Sprache werden im Anhang ausgewählte besonders wichtige Passagen des Daodejing am Originaltext im klassischen Chinesisch unter Zurhilfenahme einer modernen chinesischen Interpretation, aufgeschlüsselt, und das Hintergrunddenken dieser Textpassagen analysiert, und daraufbasierend einen eigenen Übersetzungsvorschlag angeboten. Das Werk bedarf keiner Vorkenntnisse und ist sowohl für einfache Interessenten, als auch für Experten von großem Nutzen, da es schrittweise in die Materie einsteigt, diese dann aber im Einzelnen besonders vertieft.

자유 – 나는 너를 수색한다,
서울은 한길을 나는 따라 걷는다.
평양에 대덩강 울고있다,
북남은 벽이 앞길을 막혔다.
래일은 빛이 비치흐르 않는다.
자유 – 너를 사랑하다,
억압을 삼키지 않을 것이다!

自由 – 나는 너를 搜索한다,
서울은 한길을 나는 따라 걷는다.
平壤에 大同江 울고있다,
北南은 壁이 앞길을 막혔다.
來日은 色이 비치흐르 않는다.
自由 – 너를 사랑하다,
北南에 勞動者들은 –
抑壓을 삼키지 않을 것이다!
By Timo Schmitz, 17 August 2017
Freedom – I search you,
Walking through Seoul’s one way-roads,
Pyongyang’s Taedong River cries,
Borders north and south block our future,
Tomorrows light can not shine and flow,
Freedom – I love you,
The workers in North and South
Won’t swallow oppression!
Nations traditionally tend to expand and building empires is seen as might. However, this concept is condemned to fail and instead, we have to go back to the people on the ground. In 2015, I proclaimed the New Constructivist Communism and its three levels. In this article, I want to show why the New Constructivist Communism is a true alternative and how it affects the class struggle.

When I was very young, I started to collect phrases and words in many different languges and within the years I created a big archive. In the first edition of “My Archive Of Languages” (2016), I opened the archive to the public.
This new edition contains updates and more phrases, new exercises, introductions into scripts and other features that were not included in the previous edition. The work is divided in the so called ‘manuscripts’ which are the collected files, and an appendix with ‘Notes’. These notes contain useful information about the languages, grammatical features, explanations to the phrases, etc., making it a general reference work. It is intended for polyglots who want to get a glimpse in different languages and work with them on their own. The book is multilingual, but most manuscripts are explained in English, though some are given in German, French, Chinese or Russian.
The languages that can be found in this book:
Arabic (dialects only)
Cameroon Pigin (“Bad English”)
Circassian (Adyge & Kabardin)
Chechen (+ Kist)
Kreyol (St. Lucia)
Tatar (Volga Tatar)
15 common myths about North Korea that are complete nonsense!

Though the religious motivation of the Red Banner movements is never mentioned formally in DPRK media, the religious symbolism is often brought up however. The reason why there is no explicit mentioning is the fact that the higher classes are rather atheist or agnostic, while lower educated classes are more susceptible for religious beliefs and to ensure that people do not develop beliefs against the government, myths are spreaded and pilgrimage sites opened where people can venerate the Kims as heavenly leader. The article below shows how these reeligious symbols however appear in DPRK media and how they are presented. In addition, also pre-red banner lyrics that play a large role in red banner movements are analysed like the songs “Bright Star” (1966) and “The Star of Korea” (1928/ 1980).
